History of Affiliate Marketing
Well, affiliate marketing existed even before internet did.
Before the internet came into this world, there have been thousands of instances where a person is paid a commission for getting them a customer. If you remember any of your trip 10-15 or even 25 years back, the moment you would have reached at the exit of airport or railway station, you would see a flock of taxi/rickshaw guys haggling and trying to convince you to go with them to your destination (which probably is a hotel room). As internet didn’t exist 20 years back, there were no online hotel bookings or websites to go through the available hotels in a city.
Most of the people had to rely on their gut or probably these taxi/rickshaw guys to take them to some good hotel. The moment you agree to go with them, they would turn happy, not because they got a customer who would pay them the ride fare. It was because they would take you to a hotel and get a commission from them to bring you there.
After internet being widespread across the world and all of the information on fingertips, the affiliate marketing also transformed.
As people tried to gather more and more information about certain product/service and hut reviews and feedbacks about something they are interested in, the internet became a key element in brand’s marketing and ORM strategy.
Along with that, the advent of Web 2.0 and introduction of cookie which eventually led to easier tracking across the conversion funnel.
Adding the growth of blogging and e commerce topped with user generated content, the field was set perfectly for affiliate marketing.
William J. Tobin conceived, implemented, and patented the first affiliate program for his company, PC Flowers & Gifts in 1989, followed by Amazon which launched it’s affiliate program in 1996. After that, affiliate networks such as Commission Junction and Clickbank were launched in 1998 which led to affiliate marketing easily accessible to people who want to earn money through that.
Coming back to present times, there are thousands of affiliates in each country who are growing everyday and aiming for better conversion and sales through their research, experiments and better strategies.
One major aspect which helps in increasing the understanding, skills and enhancing their performance and earning in affiliate marketing is “Peer to Peer” learning.
Peer to peer learning happens through forums, workshops, webinars and Facebook groups where hundreds and thousands of people join hands and share their knowledge and insights.
Apart from all of these online mediums, offline mediums i.e. Conferences, seminars and summits prove to be hugely beneficial in terms of learnings. Moreover, these events also give a chance to network with people in the same industry beyond the computer screen.
Each event in itself is a great chance to know the latest trend in affiliate marketing, understand what other people are doing and connect with them for learning, sharing knowledge or probably working together.
